MN Migration: Room For Improvement

by on 11 July 2018

In a sparse recap of Minnesotans playing professionally outside of the state: a quiet game from Bunbury, and Kendall-Moullin has a rough outing.

The New England Revolution settled for a scoreless draw with Seattle Sounders FC. It was a game that led Head Coach Brad Friedel to begin his post-game press conference by asking if everyone was awake. At the end both teams registered just one shot on target. Teal Bunbury did not take a single shot during his full shift. The forward did, however, set up a couple of chances for his teammates.

Andrew Kendall-Moullinand Atlanta United 2 were on the losing side of a 6-1 scoreline with New York Red Bulls 2. New York applied pressure right from kickoff and didn’t let up. By the final whistle Atlanta conceded 28 shots, 19 of which came from inside their own box. Kendall-Moullin played the full 90 and made 10 of his side’s 25 clearances. In the final minute of the game the defender earned a yellow and conceded a penalty.

Ismaila Jomecame on in the 79 minute for Nashville SC in a 0-0 draw with FC Cincinnati. The midfielder didn’t see much action, but sent in a couple of crosses to attempt to break the deadlock.

LAFC players returning from World Cup duty pushed Calum Mallacefrom the bench. The summer transfer window is now open and he is one of two players that could benefit from a move. The other is Cody Cropperwho has yet to even make the bench for New England.

Jackson Yueill watched from the bench as the San Jose Earthquakes lost to the Portland Timbers 2-1.
